The #1 Silent Time Killer? …. E-Mail (Is ANYONE Surprised by THAT?)

Share this

According to OfficeTime’s most recent survey, 47% named e-mail as the biggest time killer. As a matter of fact, of those polled by OfficeTime, 40% admitted they spend an average of 1-3 hours a day dealing with email.

In her recent blog, Clare Evans, an established personal and business time management coach and the author of “Time Management for Dummies,” shared that while she recognizes “it’s difficult to avoid email,” she offers more than a few excellent ideas to create a more professional and efficient email process.

Here are the top three points from Clare Evans’ blog “E-Mail Do’s and Don’ts”

  1. Is email the best and most appropriate means of communication?  Sometimes it’s quicker and more effective to just pick up the phone.
  2. Only send it to the person who needs to read it.  Don’t clog up someone’s inbox if they don’t need to see it.
  3. Answer all questions, and pre-empt further questions; avoid additional emails.


Yours truly,
